SORT BY Relevancy
October has been Domestic Violence Awareness Month for a couple of decades now and still some folks don’t get it. You might see a purple ribbon. Maybe some businesses and communities string some purple lights in their windows, but what are we doing this year to increase awareness and honor the lives torn apart by this particularly insidious form of violence against women?
There is a National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and we’re lucky to have its new Executive Director, Ruth Glenn join us to talk about what different groups around the country are doing to raise awareness about DV. She worked for the Colorado Department of Human Services for 28 years and served as the Director of the Domestic Violence Program (DVP) for the last nine of those years. Ruth has worked and volunteered in the domestic violence field for over 19 years and holds a Masters’ in Public Administration (MPA) from the University of Colorado Denver, Program on Domestic Violence, as well as a degree in Communications.
She has served on many domestic violence program and funding boards, provided hundreds of presentations on domestic violence victimization and survival, testified before the Colorado State legislature, appeared on local and national television, and provided consultation, training and technical assistance on a local and national level on victim/survivor issues as they relate to domestic violence.
Join us Saturday at 11 am Pacific Time to as we discuss what we are doing to improve understanding of intimate partner violence.

This week’s show will address not only the issue of Domestic Violence in the African American Community but will offer an in depth discussion of how the impact reaches far beyond the initial victim and perpetrator.

This show will engage the audience in a dialogue that will better show why “Domestic Violence is the Single Greatest Vehicle that Fuels Our Criminal Justice System” and Why “the ruin of a nation begins in the homes of its people”.Our objective is to examine the impact and discuss ways that we can both individually and systematically address this vital issue.

Sharing Her Story, Cat states:
"I grew up in a violent household. One image that has stuck with me was when he hit her over the head with a bottle. My mom never really speaks about what happened and she never left her situation. As an artist and filmmaker, felt it was important to speak to women who got out of their situations and hear what they had to say. The most important thing is that domestic violence is more widespread than people realize. Not many people knew about my family situation. I've also found out some of my own friends were in similar situations and I never knew. So being vocal about it is important. It's important to let people know how may people this affects and how many different types of people it affects regardless of age, race, or social status. And to hear what domestic violence entails. It's different for so many women."
